It's just that easy O0

An 1 1/4 oz load of #1 steel that will go near 1500 fps.
 It makes a good goose load or a heavy duck load.
 I'm getting the cost down to around $12 a box of 25, that compared to a box of premium shells at the store for around $25+. :gr:

Dang, you're making me think about digging out that old MEC reloader and playing around. I have no idea what model it is or what's missing, but looks simple enough.

MEC 250, maybe? I loaded a lot of 12GA shells with an old MEC 250 my brother and I bought when we were kids.
Nice looking load, D45!

Dunno, I can't find any numbers anywhere on it. It don't look quite like any on their site. Been meaning to call them and see if they can help identify it, then I'll know which manual to download and maybe get started.
